product Details

Avignonesi & Capannelle 50&50 2017 Tuscany 27 Litre (Goliath/ Primat)

50&50 is a wine sprung from the friendship which binds the owners of Avignonesi in Montepulciano and Capannelle in Chianti Classico. The first vintage was 1988 and it was born as an experiment, almost by chance: during a dinner the former owners of the two wineries started to compare, mix and match their wines, and came up with the even blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Merlot. This wine has been matured in French Oak barriques for 24 months.

This is a 27 litre bottle also know as a Primat or Goliath bottle. It weighs 143 pounds and holds 27 litres, the equivalent of 36 bottles of wine!

Large-format bottles are great for extended ageing periods due to the wine's slower rate of maturation. 

Please note that due to the additional weight, there shall be a shipping charge equivalent to 36 bottles applied to this lot.

  • This bottle appears to be in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure appears secure, no leakage.
  • The contents of this bottle appear to be of good colour and clarity.
